Kenny leaves ABI

Association of British Insurers director of life and pensions Chris Kenny is leaving at Christmas after three years with the ABI.

Deputy director-general Stephen Sklaroff will take on Kenny’s life and pension responsibilities and some of his other responsibilities will be reshuffled.

The ABI says after the publication of the White Paper on pension personal accounts Kenny decided it was an appropriate time to move on. He was previously director of compliance at telecomm regulator Oftel and has also worked for the Department of Health and the Treasury.

Director general Stephen Haddrill says: “We are very grateful to Chris for all his hard work over the last three years.
